(WTVR) - Three people including one teenager are homeless this morning, staying with family members, after a house fire damages their home in Henrico's east end.

Fire Captain Jim Mellon tells us the fire got started shortly after 2 am this morning at 405 Gunnsboro Court near Pleasant St.

The fire was marked under control about 20 minutes later.

No one was injured.
